Hey all, just getting ready for the season this year with SWD. What I currently have set up is a Mazda Eunos Roadster (RHD Miata) with 250 HP fully built 1.8L engine. I am working on making much larger HP in excess of 450HP. Its caged and has tubular frame front end as well. Done all the work myself except the engine build. Had some help there. Gonna be in and out of the forums when i can but I am all over facebook. -Kurt Durjan --Kurtrox Customs hope to make some extra friends here and if i can help anyone just let me know.

Oh many bruises, some i "fix" and the others I fix. Zipties are the best thing around i even picked a color that would just match the liveries.

450 hp with a T25 and an OBX manifold and a bumper full of zip ties?
Do you also have a Nardi steering wheel and a bubble shifter?

ok so the turbo is wrong, that is my bad. The obx manifolds do not last long and im looking for a better solution for the 1.8 style head. I am looking for the turbo i will need. Currently have 280whp with the old t25 but the engine is apart at the moment getting the billet mains put in. ill have it back at the end of next week. I am aiming for the 450-600 hp area if i need to go that high, 450 should be fine all day with the work ive got into it.

Im the guy on the right, as we were getting hit by water guns filled with ice water. I took second place at that drift event. Im just trying to get to first place in a miata, most guys cant say that when it comes to drifting a miata.

I hear they make 450hp on only 3psi with stock exhaust.
